Anchormen and Singer Guys, Classical Piece (no recording found yet)
Acappella and Singer Girls, Classical-“How Can I Keep From Singing” (this recording is a choir, but will give you the idea!)
Acappella and Singer Girls, Musical Theater-“No One is Alone” (this recording is one of the greats, Bernadette Peters. She doesn’t really follow the rhythm and the orchestra is forced to follow her, but she sings with so much depth it’s worth it!

Our cast of 30+ Young Americans, ages 18-24, will be the instructors for every camp. Our instructors have experience teaching kids and adults in many languages to students all around the world. The camps are an awesome opportunity for students to grow as people and performers. Students of all experience levels are encouraged to join.
Throughout the week, campers will spend time learning an hour show geared for their respective age group. We generally break kids up into elementary, middle, and high school groups. They will also be taking fun and interactive classes in singing, dancing, and improv acting.
On the fourth day of camp, we bring in an industry professional from our Alumni group who teach master classes that share the skills and experiences they have learned in their respective professions. The master teachers have had and still have careers as Broadway
performers, major TV network hosts, casting directors, and many more related professions.
The camp offers a unique experience to gain self-confidence, make new friends, learn an incredible 1-hour variety show, and take workshops in singing, dancing, and acting that you don’t want to miss out on!
At www.youngamericans.org/summercamps you can see videos, FAQ’s, and cast information.
If you still have questions, feel free to send us an email at email@example.com.
Hope to see you this summer!
